About K-PARC

Working together to make things better for our children.

Who We Are

Thank you for visiting K-PARC! We are a group of families just like yours working together to make things better for our children. It’s important to plan fun things to do together! The best information and training is made available to share with each other and the professionals that work with our children. And, connecting families to great services and the professionals that are doing great work.

What We Do

Kansas Department for Children and Families Logo The Kansas Post Adoption Resource Center provides no cost services to:

  • Families who have adopted from public child welfare in Kansas
  • Kinship families (adoption or guardianship) who reside in Kansas
  • Any adoptive family who has adopted a child from any state’s child welfare system and resides in Kansas

If this describes your family, give us a call or send an email.

Kimberlin Voth, Post Adoption Service Coordinator in Kansas City, is a Kansas State University graduate with four years of experience in child welfare. She loves to play with her dog, Fetty, and to go to movies alone. Her favorite food would be a toss-up between Chick-Fil-A and Sushi. A cup of coffee every morning is a must for her, before she can even begin to function. She hopes to one day take a trip to Africa and work inside the orphanages. She doesn’t have any children at the moment but has a huge heart for kiddos and plans to adopt in the future.
